Anthony Gormley has worked with Morganic Metal for a number of years on various projects – most recently we metalised a suit for him – the first one didn’t come out quite right – but he loved it! As pictured below in the Sunday Telegraph, immediately prior to the launch of his One & Other project on Trafalgar Square's empty Fourth Plinth:

Electro-Plated Wool/Mohair Canvassed Suit
Graeme Fidler at Aquascutum with sculptor Antony Gormley
Graeme Fidler "Antony has made creative changes to our surroundings; he has continued to inspire me with works such as 'Allotment II', 'Event Horizon' and 'Static'. By revitalising the human image through a dynamic investigation of the body, Antony has evoked emotion and feelings, creating work that we can live with and enjoy.
"His use of material is also something that has always intrigued me, from fibreglass to concrete to stainless steel. The details is unique throughout his work, which in some way is reminiscent of my way of design. I was thrilled to be asked to be a part of this project - it has been a wonderful experience to work with Antony to create 'Habitat'."
Antony Gormley OBE is the celebrated sculptor behind "Angel Of The North"
Antony Gormley "'Habitat' is a wool/mohair fully canvassed suit tailored by Graeme Fidler of Aquascutum and electroformed by Ross Morgan of Morganic Metal. I think of it as a cave. Clothing is the intimate form of architecture, here transformed through an industrial process That makes the suit both more durable and more organic: the 'place where a man might dwell' is rendered self-supporting and useless."

Walking into Antony Gormley's studio beyond the wastelands north of King's Cross is an assault on the senses. An intimidating security gate rolls back to reveal a vast white building sheltering a host of assistants hammering, clanging and sawing away at his latest masterpieces from behind their earphones and fibreglass protection masks.
